Thanks, Jack, that was a refreshing bit of sanity.

Embs, I don't think anyone here is claiming "20-30" hp from a chip alone. More like 15-20 hp by eliminating cat, and then adding a chip. The factory themselves apparently claimed more than that, but moving backwards, and perhaps not accounting for the compression difference. I agree that any claim of 20 hp based on chip alone is likely bs, but I don't doubt that there is some synergy to be gained by timing and fuel map changes on an engine whose breathing is freed up a little and thus can take advantage.
